2015 has been a big year in the transgender world. There’s been more media coverage and attention than ever before.
But I can’t help but feel that society still has a long way to go in its understanding and acceptance of crossdressers and transgender people.
Do you agree?
If so, let’s shed some light!
What do you wish people understood about you?
Whether it’s the people closest to you or the world at large, what do you want them to know?
The more voices and perspectives out there, the sooner others will (hopefully) begin to understand.
I’d love to hear from you, so please share in the comments below!
One of these days I need to get my names changed again!
It is fortunate in a way that I am a lesbian but this does not stop men from looking at me so just like any other woman I need to learn how to deal with them. I have only been on HRT for 3 months and yet I have changed a lot in such a short period of time! I am writing a sort of log in Italian on Facebook ( sorry the translators here are not very good ) and also writing about my developments for my endocrinologist in my personal files in English–he does not understand Italian and by the way I am Angelique Barbey on Facebook without the GRANT! I happily am almost always perceived as a woman in person despite my voice now which feels great and I share with women all sorts of things on a daily basis and have several girlfriends!
What I would like for people to understand is that I am the same person regardless of what type of clothes I am wearing. That’s my personality and behavior which is going to be the same whether it is covered by a dress and high heels, or by jeans and a flannel shirt. All I am really asking for is that I, other crossdressers, and T-girls be shown the same consideration as to our choice of apparel that women are shown.
I hope and think that most people understand that I just want to be beautiful, I love those cute little smirks and smiles from the “straight ” guys, they make me feel so sexy! And to be approached in a gentlemanly manner is just so flattering. But as I am so determined to look my best and always act like a lady, I deserve the respect of one as well. If you are not into a girl like me that is fine, but be respectful. I make it a point to be respectful of all others, especially my elders, even if I think they are dead wrong, or I believe they have poor judgement. To all others I always extend a gesture of goodwill and a smile, no matter what gender, race or creed they are. I would smile and say “Hello, how are you?” to the Devil if I saw him, and I would expect him/her (could be trans lol!) to reply in kind. Please don’t just stare at me, walk up and introduce yourself. I am a very interesting, intelligent and beautiful person with a great life story. I would be happy to tell anyone that wants to know how and why I am who I am, and how being female instead, has made my life better.
Hi Leeza, You are so beautiful. If I saw you out, I wouldn’t know that you weren’t really a Girl. I wish I looked that good.
Feeling beautiful and confident is what we all deserve. Let’s enjoy this special journey.
You are so gorgeous.
love your thoughts
I feel the same way.
I wish men understood that I don’t want to have sex with all of them. It seems most men who find out that I am TG, they either distance themselves or they become so pushy it freaks me out and I distance MYSELF.
It 44 years of drinking and 2+ Years of counseling with an therapist to realize that there was a female inside me. All the anxiety and depression was gone. I stopped drinking for good and let Bobbi Jo into my life. I had already a had
A complete wardrobe with everything from a wig down to my 3 inch pumps and all the appropriate items in between.My taste is very high ended so I purchase my bras “38” B ” and my dresses from Soma. Here is the problem: my wife is slowly letting Bobbi Jo come out but is disgusted with my wig and only allows me to dress when she is not home. What’s a girl
To do ? I’m trapped again.
It’s really a simple thing I wish people understood…I’m just a guy who loves to emmulate women.
It’s just the way I wanna dress and feel! I don’t pass and at this point I don’t care to, it’s such a petty thing I don’t get why people have a hard time. Really?? It’s silly to be judged or teased because I want to look and feel like a woman.
…this is a toughy. i don’t really worry much on how others perceive me. i mean i used to real bad. i mean i still have anxiety, (so most of those confidance ones are hard for me) looking in the eye and such… so i guess you could say that i would care.
i am umm… collected? i guess.
…i am too addicted to clicking like… i wanna click like on so many of these…
I truly wish I could walk down the street in lovely women’s clothing without being mistreated by those that don’t approve and can’t just let me be. There is still far too much intolerance as people are afraid of what they don’t understand.
Hi Rachel. My name is Kara. I am born female and my head feels female. That being said im extremely empathetic to the plight of the TG and CD community. For obvious reasons of course. But really i love being a girl for the clothes!!!!!!!!!! I love clothes my outfits have freakin stories behind them like the brash talkin dame who wears high waisted sailor pants but timed warped to a sex pistol concert. I get true joy from this. TG mtf’s deserve that simple joy too!!! No not deserve ,its a RIGHT. Do you think considering conversion of sizes to fit with feminizing in mind, a store for TG mtf could be a success? I live in LA and my store is in a perfect location on a famous street. Im doing research but cant seem to find stats on the estimated numbers of TG CD mtfs in and around los Angeles. Do you have any thoughts advice? Not a drag queen thing or anything over the top but just like a cute boutique with trendy everyday styles. U think theres a market? I know im a stranger but im researching so im not creepy. lol jk Anyways if u find time plz reply. or better yet if u want email me at email@example.com thank you!
